CHARLIE of the Orient
only Chinese Comedian in Pictures.
of the Orient
this rip snortin' L-KO -- "A CLEAN SWEEP" -- shows a brand
of "Chinese comedy" that's entirely new in this country.
Safe to say that Charlie of the Orient introduces for the first time
to American screens a line of oriental laughs that have never been
seen before. Charlie is a mighty good bet for your advertising, for
there has not appeared to date a real Chinese comedian, and you can
make "meat" of Charlie's appearance in your house in this
L-KO. Book this and all forthcoming L-KO'S, also the past releases.
They are all laugh getters, and you can't show too many comedies now
in war times. The people want them all.
